Feminist Analysis of Susan Glaspell's
"A Jury of her Peers"
Reading and Asking Questions
Where I was initially focused on how the women understood eachother through their common house work, my discovery draft ended up focusing more on the aspect of men and women's understanding of justice.
Drafting and Revising
With this draft not only added an introduction, but I provided a little more historical background about the legal system in America at that time. This both gives readers a bit better of an understanding of the situationand allows me to explain how Mrs. Peter's understanding of justice is a more masculine one. However, I still wasn't encorporating enough theory to really set up the argument.
This draft showsa big improvement in the explaination of theory. My last draft had a large section trying to relate the events of the story so they could then be interprited but it ended up being too much summary. This draft more concisely explained the situation with analysis interspersed throughout the explaination.
